UVT scales customers’ flight operations with Iris Automation’s Casia G surveillance solution

Drone technology provider UVT has partnered with safety avionics technology innovator, Iris Automation, to enable large-scale beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations for its customers, without the need for visual observers (VOs), says the press release.

UVT’s customers are a wide range of public safety, utilities and construction organizations, requiring large-scale, cost-effective technologies. UVT offers end to end comprehensive drone services, from consultation, site surveys, hardware, software, operational and technical guidance to training, installation, support and the necessary regulatory permissions.

UVT is now offering Iris Automation’s Casia G to its customers. Casia G is a ground-based air surveillance system, which creates a volume of monitored airspace for safe operation, removing the requirement for individual VOs for each drone operation. Without an air surveillance solution like Casia G, BVLOS operations are restricted to very low altitudes or require additional personnel, such as visual observers (VO’s), on site. This limits the potential of the drones to be used for remote, automated operations, and can make UAS operations overly cumbersome, expensive, slow, and sometimes even dangerous for the drone operators and VOs.

Casia G can be installed in any location with a clear view of the skyline, including rooftops, extendable masts, water towers, cellular towers, or even a contractor tripod, without requiring any integration onto the drone. It alerts the remote pilot to any airborne intruder presenting a collision risk, who can then command the drone to move to a safe zone. An automated system such as Casia G also offers a superior level of observation to humans. It does not get distracted or require breaks and is not impacted by hot or cold weather.

Multiple Casia G nodes can be deployed to cover any sized operational area, creating a network of safe airspace for operating multiple drones from multiple launch points, all from one centralized management point.
